    I laughed, but this is better because you don't need 8 eggs, just the one (because it's sperm-related).

    The scary part of this idea is that with further progress along this line, the male gender will no longer be necessary and... well, I'll just leave it at that!

    Wouldn't want to give the people who have the right to make a "choice" any ideas. ;)
